Team Purebred and its core breeders have offered several fabulous females over the years to generate revenue and help grow and run that tremendous organization. In 2014 the Schminke Family from Van Horne, Iowa offered one of the very best and Mike Ammann and his sons stepped to the plate and owned her to add to their successful Duroc herd in Highland Illinois. This foundation Chester female the Ammann boys added would prove to be a herd-altering female that has raised numerous champions - herd boars and killer females to be retained. And her story is not over yet. In her first litter she produced the following: 2016 Reserve Champion Chester Gilt Team Purebred Junior National, 2016 Reserve Bred and Owned Barrow Team Purebred Junior National, 2016 Champion Chester Gilt Indiana State Fair, 2016 Reserve Champion Chester Gilt Illinois State Fair, 2016 Champion Chester Barrow Illinois State Fair Open Show, 2016 ICPA High Points Chester Gilt, and 2016 ICPA 2nd High Points Chester Barrow. Two of her daughters from two different litters produced these winners: 2017 Champion Chester Barrow National Western Stock Show, 2017 Reserve, 3rd, & 4th Overall Gilts at World Pork Expo, 2017 Heavyweight Class Winning Chester Barrow World Pork Expo, 2017 3rd & 5th Overall Chester Gilts Team Purebred Junior National, 2017 Reserve Chester Gilt Summer Type Conference, and 2017 High Points Chester Barrow Iowa Jackpot Circuit.
Fiddler is a very youthful, clean-made prospect that has the “look.” He has a sharp, trim neck and a small head with a tight ear. This Banjo son is sure-footed and can float and go off all four. He is flexible and set correctly in his spine. His topline is level and he hooks up long and true through his hip with an ideal tail placement. Fiddler stands down correctly on his rear two and places them back and square on the go. While carrying himself high-headed and attractive-headed, he is still a soft-bodied, full-flanked hog that gives the impression of a softer muscle and reads like he will sire ones that will be easy to feed. Built like you want them and out of a priceless Foundation female, the song writes itself. It just needs a Fiddler to finish the story. It’s your turn to dance!
